The Pentax PC35 AF was the first 35mm compact camera with autofocus from Pentax released in about 1982. Its name led to a whole range of Pentax PC cameras.
The PC35AF stands out because it offers some manual features that other point and shoot cameras do not. It also feels much more sturdy and solid than most other mid range point and shoot cameras.
The sharp 35mm f2.8 lens is protected by a sliding cover that can be released by pressing down on a small tab on the right side of the cover. The lens is able to focus from 0.7m to infinity. To focus aim the circle in the viewfinder to the subject and half press on the shutter release. The bottom of the viewfinder frame displays the approx focusing distance with pictures of single guy 0.7m, couple 1.5m and mountain infinity. A needle points to the distance. The top of the finder frame has a green indicator for correct exposure. If orange, an audible beep is heard so light is insufficient and flash may need to be used. The flash can pop up by releasing the switch on the base of the camera. A led on the left of the finder eyelet will be green when the flash is charged. A exposure compensation button is on top of the camera, it changes the exposure by +1.5EV.
The camera can use film from 25-400 ASA/ISO. There is no DX reading and film speed is set on the base of the camera with a sliding switch below the lens. The settings goes from 25 to 400. The film is advanced with a thumb wheel. Rewinding the film requires releasing the film tension with a button and flipping up the metal film rewind crank on the base.
